Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Come, weary souls, by sin oppressed,
On Christ the Son believe,
And He will give you peace and rest;
Salvation you’ll receive.

Refrain:
"Come unto Me," the Savior cries,
"And I will give you rest.
The soul that on My grace relies
Shall be with comfort blest."

2 He’s borne your load of sin and guilt,
Your debt He’s kindly paid;
His precious blood He freely spilt,
A full atonement made. [Refrain]

3 His yoke receive with humble heart,
And bear it with delight;
Rest, peace and joy He will impart,
He’ll make your burden light. [Refrain]
